Fall is right around the corner! Which means we’re ready to craft some seasonal favorites like pumpkins, apples, and autumn leaves. Last year around this time, Krista made a felt lattice pie with slices of felt apples to go inside. So now we have whole apples and halves for you to make.
If you’re new to making felt food, this is a great craft project for beginners. Just check out our supplies list, then download our tutorial below.
How ‘Bout These Apples?
These felt apples would pear well with our felt pears from last year for your fall harvest. We used three different shades of our red felt, but you’re always welcome to use whatever felt you prefer. However, we do recommend using a high-quality felt so your project holds up well over time.
